Designed by modernist architect Barry Alan Berkus and built in 1961, Merito Manor is a 10-residence, single-story condominium garden community located on one acre in the historic Old Las Palmas neighborhood, just a few blocks from the Uptown Design District.
The dramatic folded plate roof design and clerestory windows sitting above decorative rock walls are distinctive examples of midcentury modern architecture. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors overlook large private patios. All residences were originally 1,426 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Tour seven of these thoughtfully restored and individually styled Merito Manor residences. Proceeds from this years event will be used for landscape restoration with drought-tolerant and desert landscaping. Light refreshments will be served by the pool.
No children under 12. Please, no pets, food or smoking inside residences or on the grounds. Interior photography at the discretion of the homeowner. Private residences are not wheelchair accessible.
